MCHPP Program Support
On August 30th Brunswick schools will open for the 2021-2022 school year. The good news is that children will be able to receive free lunches; however, it does not solve the entire problem of food insecurity. MCHPP will again start up their Backpack Program. providing nutritious food to the children to help them get through the weekend when school is not in session. The children can pick up a bag of food anonymously. The food is the type that will not spoil. MCHPP will have to purchase most of the food used in this program. Please consider writing a check in any amount to MCHPP, 12 Tenney Way, Brunswick, ME 04011. Put Backpack Program on the memo line.
